Mr. Daniel Hartman returned Sunday
from a tour ot the important cities of the
east, where he selected a large stock of
fancy goods of all kinds for the coming
holiday season. The high-grade agitation
here caused him to pay some attention in
the several large cities he visited to the
work on real estate p rforme 1 there, and he
declares tint h-: saw done what ho never
believed mechanical skill capable of per
f.roiing. A trip of inspection of this kind
woiil d,probably do much to cure some peo
ple of the impression that the improvement
proposed here is b?yond the reach ordinary
means and skill.
To wh mi it may concern: We the un-dtrsigm-d
few citizens and property owners
on Commercial avenue, who have been here
tofore more or less enthusiastic over and in
favor of the pr 'posed high grade move
ment, have, after mat'irod deliberation,
come to the conclusion that tho filling
scheme to the proposed hight would be
impracticable at the present time.
Pail 0. rkneii.
R. II. ClNMNOHAM.
JellN A. KOEHLER.
T. N. IvIMHROUOII.
Toaceituin extent the foregoing c;rd
explains itself. It tells the public that the
genth iii'iii whose names are appended to it
believe tha1, at present, street
raising is impracticable. It does
not siy that the signers are opposed
to street raising, though this might bo In
ferred; it does not tell why they believe the
pjoj.-ct impi amicable, at tho present time,
nor what their object is in publishing their
belief. These points of doubt wo havu en
deavored to clear up by personal interviews
with sumo of tho signers, and hero is the
result, given without bias and as nearly
verbatim as euch interviews are usually
Mr, PaulO. S :huh, the firHt signer on
the list, was one of the first ami most en
thusiastic advocates of high grade in the
city, but ho is opposed to it now hecauso
Mr. Putin Hatip, who owns tho building
next to Mr, Hchuh's, would not raise his
building in case the grade were raised, but
would simply raise the roof and put another
story on top; ntid us the two buildings aro
joined by a partnership wall, Mr. Schuh
would bo compelled also to almndimn his
Hist floor foi a basement and raise hi roof.
His first floor is ono of tho finest store
rooms in flio city, having cost in
finishing the walls and coiling, etc.,
about three thousand dollars. To accom
modate his building to tho now order of
things would cost him, ho says, from two to
throe thousand dollars sgaiD, so that, di
rectly and indirectly, tho change would
cot him from five lo six thousand dollar,
which would be more than ho would like
to expend. Ho fears also that iu casu the
slicet were raised and Washington avftiue
remained low, business men would leave
Commercial avenue for the bottoms and
business would follow, which would hurt
him material y. Ho would have a law
passed compelling owuors of low lots to fill
them up to the present grade, would have
half a dozen pumps put in operation, run
by tho several steam milts and manu
facturing establishments, and would
trust to the levees for security against the
rivers and to internal enterprise for ad
vancement. Mr. Peter Saup was also a hearty suppor
ter of high grade uot a mouth ago; but he
has reconsideied the matter and changed
his opinion entirely. Ho has several houses
on the avenue now and draws good n ut
from the in. He believes he would not re
ceive any more rent if ho were to raise his
houses, so that he would only be out tho
cost of raising. He believes also that busi
ues would be driven away from the street;
that his property would decrease rather
than iucnase in value. He believes that
C airo has not the facilities to be.-ome a city
cf any size, anyhow; that there is no do
main! for a large city here, as the surround
ing country is not such as would require a
large distributing point.
Mr. Peter NetVwss also strongly iu favor
of raising not a month ago. He is strongly
iu favor of it jet, provided the tilling will
not te confined to Commercial aveuue for a
number of years. He fears that retail busi
ness will be driven back to the low streets
if high grade is inaugurated on Commer
cial aveuue alone, which would cause the
abandonment of the houses on Commercial
aveiiu-.', just as was the case on Ohio levee.
The change would cost him not less than
fifteen thousand dollars, hich he could not
now afford to spend. 1 lo would have to
tear down his little brick at the corner of
Eighth street and put up a new one, much
more expensive, and the new one would nut
bring him any more rent than the present
one does. Ho was getting high up into the
fifties now, and did not care to go into huge
enterprises requiring heavy txpeuditures of
money. He believed that we are safer
against overflow than ever before and might
uot be troubled with another flood lor
many years. Ho w as do pg very well w ith
his property now, but did uot think that he
would do any better it he ma le the changes
suggested, at least not enough better to
justify the expenditure, hence could see no
good reason why he should make it.
Capt. T. N. Kimbrough, of the Wavci ly
houe, two jears ago offerel to raise his
large house an 1 the street in front of it
above high-water inaik, aud would have

he 'lot snow that whereas, under pnsi-nt
c m hu ms, his property is wrth probably
ten Ihoiiiand dollars, it would, if raised as
proposed, be worth forty thousand he
w mid refme to take the latter sum, jf it
were raised now. But lately he had invest
ed his surplus money in another enterprise,
from which he did not desire to withdraw
it, hence he had signed the foregoing paper.
Yet, il his neighbors were in favor of going
up and the council ordeied Ihe street to
be raised, he would be among the first to
go to w.,rk and would put his hotel up to
the i.ew line.
Mr. lK'sdiinotiia said he gavo his name
to Mr. S iiip and didn't know what that
gentleman did with it. He is for raising
if Mr. S nip is, and is against raising if Mr.
Saup is against it.
These five aro all ot tho signers we were
able 1 1 interview last evening. Of
the other four Messrs. Cunningham and
Kleb were Jnot advocates of street filling
hfor", arid Messrs. Cary ami Koehler were
cori'litu ii illy so and are probably the same
yet. There are several on the avenue who
are unconditionally opposed to filling, and
whose views were printed iu these columns
before. If the object of publishing this
carl was to inlluence the city council
against thf! street raising ordinance pend
ing in th:tt body, tho means, it seems to us,
are entirely inadequate. The council ni light
assume with good reason, that, taking it
for granted that the card is intended as a
protcit against street raising, there were
only iiino property holders ou the avenue
who are opposed lo the ordinance now mid
hilf of these, only passively no, and that the
dozens of others are all in favor of it, upon
the well e'ltablisimd parliamentary rulo that
silence a'ways gi"es consent. With this
view of the case and taking into considera
tion that most of iho reasons given for this
opposition are merely of a speculative na
ture and palpably untenable, tho council
would probably not permit itHclf to bo in
fluence I by tho car l and defeat a measure
that tho majority seamed to support, an I
that a proper disregard of purely personal
int rests and a proper regaid for the gener
al good would heartily support. But Iho
signers of tho card are men of property,
who exert considerable influence over their
neighbors, and their opinions and desires
should bn given all the weight they merit,
which the committees having tho ordinance
in charge will doubtless do lu tho course
of their deliberations over ordinance.
